A beautiful clash of design and architecture: Vincent A/W ’14

Palermo’s famous Liberty architecture, born during The Belle Epoque in Europe somewhere between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the First World War, is silently being brought to life as a major influence in Vincent’s superb autumn / winter 2014 collection. The austere string of silhouettes serves as the perfect foundation for the buoyancy defining the lines inspired by Villino Florio’s unique aesthetic shape.

The campaign, following closely on the clash of design and architecture, manages to evoke the exquisiteness and the rich stylistic alphabet defining the 1900s, as photographed by Debora Barnaba.

A bouquet of floral motifs, gold metallic accents, intricate appliques and iridescent lace, are sure to infuse the modern silhouettes with some of the old world’s romanticism. On the other side, bright embroideries, vegetative elements, along with the spectacular collision of hard and soft, further attest the exceptional influence of Art Nouveau.

With make-up and hair by Roberto Mambretti and styling by Eleanor Papetti, you can see all of the Vincent fall /winter 2014 collection by clicking on a thumbnail on the left. From there you can browse through each of the pictures from the gallery.
